Day 1: iPhone X review

I've been using the iPhone X for about 24 hours now, and here are my initial, not-well-thought-out thoughts.


Works remarkably well, and much quicker than I was expecting. Works well at night, with a hat, without a hat, and with green eggs and ham. I've had issues with TouchID in the past when my fingers were sweaty (like after a run) or I had too much dirt on the home button. These problems disappear with FaceID. One drawback is that it doesn't work with my sunglasses on, and I am a serial sunglass wearer.

Wireless Charging

I have a Qi charger built into my car, which I wanted to use with my new phone. I was concerned that I wouldn't be able to use it with my credit card sleeve that I have used with my iPhones for the past 6 years. Good news is that the Qi charger works with up to 4 cards in the sleeve. It charges slow, but it does charge. I need to test how much slower it actually charges.
